When I started training in March I had set little mini goals to keep me motiveated along the way. Every week I would set one for the following week. I reached each one and this made me happy. In March my then trainer told me that one day I would be able to do all of my lifts using the 45s. This seemed impossible to me at that time......well it finally happened.
Squat: 135 (this is the one that has been a thorn in my side, but I'll be damned some bar on my back was going to keep me from my goal)
These were not 1RM, but for reps. Now to name my next goal.
I know this probably doesn't sound like much to those that have been trainig for any length of time, but I am thrilled with my Newbie gains and felt like telling you about it.
